The return of Arnold Horween as coach of the football team will be welcomed by all Harvard men who have seen the working out of his influence on the game at Harvard and on the men who play it. For the three years during which his system has been operative, there has been built up a tradition of hard football that counts the game as more than the winning of it, and a carrying the ball always against the other team as the best way to play the game. It is a worthy tradition, whose worth needs no testimony, and the assurance of its extension for at least another year is encouraging.
Football at Harvard occupies a position almost unique in American colleges. It is one into which Horween's sense of football values fits admirably. Harvard faces another season of that success which no stamp of victory can make more genuine.
